Alabama's Timbercraft Tiny Homes, the firm behind the Retreat, recently completed another model that pushes the definition of a tiny house. Dubbed the Denali, the towable dwelling measures a massive 37 ft (11.2 m)-long and is very spacious inside, boasting high ceilings and a larger-than-usual bedroom.

The Denali comprises a total floorspace of 352 sq ft (32.7 sq m) and is based on a triple-axle trailer. Obviously, it's pretty far removed from pint-sized tiny houses like the Essen'Ciel which is almost half the Denali's length and, as such, seems better suited for those who aren't going to be towing it around very often.

The Denali is clad in board and batten siding, and topped by a standing seam metal roof. The exterior includes a small outdoor shower and its two decks can be folded upwards when owners do need to hit the road.

Two doors provide access to the home. Entering by the living room door, visitors are greeted with a couch and an impressive 11 ft (3.3 m)-high ceiling. Adjacent to this area is a relatively large kitchen, which includes full-size appliances like fridge and propane-powered range oven. Lots of custom cabinetry is installed and there are two breakfast bars.

Continuing further into the home reveals a bathroom, which includes a toilet, bath/shower, sink, and washing machine. Nearby, a pipe ladder provides access to a small storage loft.

At the home's rear, a storage-integrated staircase leads up to the only bedroom in this model (another loft area can be optionally installed). Unusually, this isn't the typical tiny house loft style bedroom that you have to get on your knees and crawl around to use, but a spacious bedroom with plenty of headroom to stand up and walk around.

The Denali gets power from a standard RV-style hookup and has LED lighting installed throughout. Insulation is spray foam and the home is heated and cooled with mini-split air-con systems. We've no word on price for this one, but those interested can get in touch with the firm. The model pictured was recently sold to a couple in Indiana.

So...it's a mobile home?

Pushes the definition? Obliterates it. Cut out the middle section, you have three "tiny homes". Don't get me wrong, I think its nice as it is. But i believe we need to revisit the original tiny home dwellings which clearly define and setthe definition of "tiny house" living.

Gee, a $100k mobile home which looks too tall to get under many overpasses and is too long to navigate into many places. Large enough for solar but none included. This is one of the new Not So Small Houses, eh? (Sarah Susanka is rolling her eyes over this one, I'm sure)

This thing is a beautiful tiny home, but no way are you going to be able to tow it down the 405 towards San Diego other than at 3:35am on a Sunday doing no more than 25 mph. Local codes are brutal on tiny homes, so unless you own a piece of land 50 miles outside of Vegas in the middle of the desert, good luck finding a decent place to park it and enjoy it.

Glad to see the "siting" problem. Experienced this first hand with a mobile home. You usually end up on "mobile home property" which is over priced and has bad financing and resale.

You build a bunch of these beauties around a lake and rent them out a week or two at a time and everyone wins. Nice job.

Huh. Make it bigger, and it feels less cramped. Who knew?
